Maximum safety is of the utmost priority when transporting passengers and goods. With our high standard of quality and our reliability, we have been supplying the rail industry with various assembly components for many years. One key advantage in this, of course, is our engineering expertise.
Nosta Rail Assembly System Significant cost savings can be achieved through standardisation. With the nosta rail assembly system, we offer you a range based on standardized C-rails with track width 10, 15 and 19 and the matching fixing elements. The assembly rails may be integrated directly or fitted retrospectively. The most effective cost-saving is achieved by integrating the nosta rail assembly system rails directly into the extruded aluminium segments of the railcar body.
The nosta product portfolio for rail applications comprises the nosta rail assembly system and general rail components. The nosta rail assembly system was created by standardizing the assembly rails and the associated fixings. Using the press-fit assembly rail makes standardization both cost-effective and effective in terms of the use of materials as this system is suitable for a wide range of rail vehicle applications. nosta is also able to produce a wide variety of technical rail components for specific requirements, such as table hinges, lifting plates or threaded blocks.
Nosta uses a number of different methods to produce technical components. For rail industry applications we also have extensive technical knowledge – including all the latest technological developments – and can offer real alternatives when necessary. Our advantages include the expertise of our qualified employees, experience, willingness to innovate and flexibility.
The Nosta Service package includes:
The semi-finished products for our finished machined parts are produced to high quality standards.
The cold drawing process ensures a smooth surface, work-hardening and excellent dimensional accuracy. The hardening diagram shows approximate values for a melt for material 1.4301 (taken from the Nirosta material data sheets).
The initial values for Rp0.2 = 210 N/mm² and Rm = 600 N/mm² at an elongation of roughly 55% change with 20% work hardening to Rp0.2≈800 N/mm² and Rm≈900 N/mm² at an elongation of roughly 22%.
This significant change in the property of the material does allow greater static loading of the parts. The dynamic stress limits have to be considered separately.
By matching the profile as closely as possible to the cross-section of the resulting part we are able to produce machined parts efficiently and cost-effectively. Profiles therefore offer potential for reducing costs in terms of the materials and equipment used and the labour and energy costs
We use many different production methods which allows us to supply immediate demand by machining a standard flat steel product. We can thus bridge the delivery time for the optimum semi-finished product.
